I Promise You'll Never Grow Old
Let's take a walk in the cool precious night and we'll talk about the past how we came untied
Tell me when do you feel satisfied
And did I want to fall in love?
If I could pronounce her name well it would take years at a time to explain
And all of my years spent down by a lake where the mermaids dive and wonder why, wonder why I question everything, question everything
Now I'm gonna hush all these angry words that rain down in my mind like a hail storm
And what would be the reason for cutting you down and making me feel so terrible again?
What, when we both could just swing in the breeze?
And could you hit the dance floor with me?
She can twist and she will charge
But I'll show off like a parrot in a bird cage
(Ooh woo hoo, ooh woo hoo, ooh woo hoo-ooh)
Sunny day kissing the clouds away
Friendly stranger the air is clean and the world is so green because you're holding hands with me
Wooo, wooo ooh ooh-ooh
I came back to touch the ray that shone so bright in the coming year
And I hate it for ending this way
And leaving me so drunk with the laughter and the tears
I'm not going to desert you my friend or try to make you cold 'cause it's old and it's cold
And it's all out of time and the curtains are tore and jailbirds are loosed flying free in the morning
